The first round of DLC for Metro Last Light will be next week’s Faction Pack. This consists of three missions, one from each of the game’s factions, which is a pretty cool angle for further exploring Metro’s post-apocalyptic subway expression of the Russian national identity.
As a Special Detachment Sniper of the Redline, players must infiltrate a heavily guarded Reich Outpost at night, under the cover of a deadly radioactive storm…before defending the Frontline as a Reich ‘Heavy’, armed with some of the most devastating weaponry found in the Metro. Lastly, players take the role of a Polis Ranger in training, tasked with exploring the vast Library complex for artifacts and relics. Salvage can be exchanged for ammunition, filters and hazard suits allowing ever deeper exploration into the Library. Rangers are advised to ignite torches and leave a trail of lights, so they can find their way back to the base before their precious oxygen runs out.
Publisher Deep Silver also announced details for the rest of the announced DLC.
The ‘Tower Pack’ presents a unique experience for seasoned Metro gunslingers – a challenge based game mode, with online Leaderboard support, as players fight their way up the combat simulator known as The Tower
The ‘Developer Pack’ boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission — The Spiders’ Nest — offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants
Lastly the Chronicles Pack will feature original single player missions that cast the player as three of the game’s standout characters — Pavel, Khan and Anna — and explore their side-stories away from Artyom’s adventure.
Each pack will be $5, or available as part of a $15 season pass. Meanwhile, Bioshock DLC is a no-show and Square/Enix is selling multiplayer maps for Tomb Raider.
